Description: 

This territory is located in some of the most famous area of the Cariboo/Chilcotin starting with one of the most famous Rainbow Trout rivers in BC, the Blackwater (West Road) and moving on to some of the most famous cowboys settling in this country year past only to find it was game rich and gold in the grass.  The area takes in part of 6-1 and 5-12 splitting quotas for moose into each WMU.  The area stretches from the Naglico Hills in the north to the Itcha and Ilgachuz Ranges to the south.   Westerly boundaries include Eliguk Lake and almost reaching Tsacha Lake to the east.  The majority of the area is only accessible via floatplane and horse although there are a few 4x4 roads in the northern part. 

There is a main camp on Shag Creek that is accessible by horse trail.  Camp includes 5 good log cabins for sleeping plus a main cabin with shower room and regular amenities.  There is also a corral, tack and meat shed.  There is also an old airstip.  There are 2 cabin camps and 3 other outpost camps, some with older buildings and others are camping locations.  All cabins are log with tin roofs containing stoves and general equipment.

Hunting has historically been done using the main camp as a base and spreading out from there.  Clients can be delivered by floatplane to a lake close to the main camps and then trucked in.  Air services that have been used in the past are located out of Nimpo Lake.  There is now an opportunity in the northern part of the area to use 4x4 via Vanderhoof.
